The Caterpillar One Mile Walk program is a fundraising campaign designed to raise awareness and support for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain.
Fibromyalgia affects us all, one of the greatest challenges our community faces is lack of awareness (both within the medical community and the community at-large) which leads to isolation, fear, and depression. As the FCSA works to address the gaps in medical care and supportive services one of our biggest priorities is bringing our community together. Embracing our diversity. Celebrating our differences…and above all uniting our community.
There is strength in unity. And that is the theme of our 2019 5th Annual Caterpillar Walk: We are One, United We Walk!

100% of proceeds will benefit the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America (FCSA) introduction of a Center of Excellence Program which will offer immediate support to those living with Fibromyalgia and their families. Current fundraising efforts by other organizations support long term solutions to fibromyalgia which are necessary and vital however, for those living with fibromyalgia there are no immediate care initiatives. The FCSA Fibromyalgia Center of Excellence will be dedicated entirely on helping those living with fibromyalgia and when the time comes the Center of Excellence Program will support the introduction of new treatment and therapies that are being supported by other research initiatives.
One of the greatest challenges of this syndrome is the lack of awareness and SUPPORTIVE SERVICES available for people living with this chronic illness and their families, as a result the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America has launched this year’s theme: Join the Movement, One Step at a Time. Your participation in this run will help us make Fibromyalgia visible. Our goal is to help bring the Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain community together.
